Welcome to my blogsite!
My goal in blogging is to provide thought provoking ideas about topics that influence all of us. I thoroughly research topics before blogging about them and provide data and sources to validate my claims.
Who am I and why should you read my blogs?
I have been an educator for more than 40 years and have taught at every grade level from preschool to graduate school. I have been a classroom teacher, a principal, school counselor, a director-owner of an independent Pre-K-8 school, and a university professor. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother and have many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles. I have lived a long time, have met all kinds of folks, have observed a lot of craziness and goodness, and have traveled in all fifty states. So, needless to say, I have a lot to say about a lot of things! As to why you should read or listen to what I have to say… your mind and mine need stimulation. If we simply go blindly through life without thoughtful reflection, we will find that it will end too quickly and that we missed much of it.
Remember, the gift of literacy is the greatest gift you can give, so invite others to join us in reading, viewing, listening, and discussing what really matters.
